Southampton are interested in a move for Anderlecht youngster Marco Kana, who could look to leave the club over a lack of playing time.

Kana has been with Anderlecht since he was seven years old and last season signed a new deal at the club until 2025.

He’s managed just five appearances and 338 minutes of football in all competitions this season, though, spending the last three league games sitting on the bench and the one before it out of the squad entirely.

Yesterday Calciomercato reported that Southampton ‘look carefully’ at his situation, with it explained that they like ‘like’ the 18-year-old defensive midfielder.

That’s been picked up on in Belgium, with Walfoot citing the report but adding that ‘the lack of playing time’ could push him to see if the ‘grass is greener elsewhere’.

Anderlecht-online have also covered the report, and they state that alongside Southampton, Sevilla and Juventus have been credited with an interest.

However, they pour a little doubt on the rumour saying his contract means a departure seems ‘rather unlikely’ unless any of his suitors offer a ‘sum that cannot be refused’.

Whether Southampton would be willing to offer such a fee remains to be seen, but it seems they once again have their eye on Belgian football after signing Moussa Djenepo from Standard Liège last season.
